Hooniverse Asks: Do You Pay Extra to Get There Faster

TTC_I-110_LA In case it hasn’t been made abundantly clear with the current election season here in the U.S., wealth has its advantages. Oh sure there is the heightened threat of paper cuts from counting money, and the prospect of being crushed beneath an avalanche of unnecessary possessions, but over all, it’s good to be rich. One of the reasons why is the ability to take advantage of exclusive roads known as toll roads and pay-to-play HOV lanes. Here in LA you can slog across the San Gabriel Valley on the 10 Freeway with the rest of the schmos, a trek that on an average morning could take more than an hour, or you could pay a few bucks and make the trip in an exclusive FasTrack lane in a mere matter of minutes. It’s what separates the haves from the have nots, at least when it comes to FasTrack transponders and a bank account to fill it. Do you value time over money and make use of these sort of extra cost time savers when it comes to your drives? I know that we’re all egalitarian here and think that we should all face the same traffic, but gosh darn it, sometimes you really have to pee! What do you say, do you ever pay extra to get there faster? Image: thetransitcoalition.us
